Hakko FX-8801 handpiece holder steampunked!
« on: September 20, 2019, 01:19:05 am »
So after burning so many bits of junk on my busy (some say messy) workbench, including a nasty one to my pinky the other day when I stupidly shoved the holder during a ‘clear some space moment’ & made a split second contact with the iron, I mod’d the darn thing to prevent any more accidents.

Who likes the steampunk look?

Where are the gauges, copper pipe and goggles? :-DD

Oddly enough, I've never had that problem, even though my workbench is very messy. Copper or aluminium tape might work quite well and will certainly be easier to implement.

  I can't say that I'm fond of the SteamPunk look but that does look good and I like the way that you twisted the wires and interlocked them at every junction.

why not drill holes and twist the wire in the end rather then all the screws
